Types of RVs: Recreational Park Trailer (RPT)

Recreational Park Trailers (RPTs) are designed to be used as temporary living quarters for recreation, camping, or seasonal use. In most cases these seasonal cottages are taken to a vacation spot, set-up and left there. This can be in an RV park, resort area, or a tranquil location in the mountains, or along the coast, usually within a few hours drive from the owner’s residence.

RPTs come in various designs but are normally one of two types. There are 12 foot wide models that are usually around 36 to 40 feet long. This type has a peaked, shingled roof and siding similar to a house or cottage. Twelve foot wide models need to be moved and set up by professionals with the proper type of equipment.

Another common type of RPT is slightly less than 8’ 6” in width and up to 39 feet in length. This type looks more like a travel trailer and can be transported by the owner with a proper tow vehicle, but the set-up usually requires trained professionals. They have slide-outs to give additional living space inside when they are set-up. Most park model trailers do not exceed 400 square feet.

Recreational park trailers are equipped with full bathrooms, kitchens, living room, bedrooms, heat and air, all appliances and are usually fully furnished. Because they are designed to be stationary, for the most part, many RPTs have full size appliances like you would find in your home, rather than RV type appliances. Prices can range from $25,000 to over $100,000.

Happy RV Learning,
